A dialect of basic developed by Dr. Wang in the late 1970s. Tiny BASIC was 2K bytes in size and was loaded from paper tape. It ran on almost any intel 8080 or zilog z80 microprocessor for which the user could provide the necessary I/O driver software.

Tiny BASIC was distributed as freeware. The program listing contained the following phrases "All Wrongs reserved" and "copyleft", he obviously wasn't interested in money.
